I like having a routine, it gives me a sense of comfort. Having a routine is difficult as it is likely to be broken at a moments notice. Still I fight against the chaos of normal life and try to cultivate a set schedule of events in my daily life.
As a bachelor this was fairly easy to accomplish, but sharing your life with someone means sharing your time. So I can no longer be Phileas Fogg now that I have my own Aouda, and without a Passepartout to help me I instead have to rely on the whims of society to meet my timetable.
Despite all this I still do have my schedule, even if it is one that is tricky to manage.
06:15 Alarm goes off, the worst part of the day
06:30 Finally get out of bed and go make drinks for myself, Mrs G and the Feliciraptor
06:50 Get the dino dressed and get ready for work, Have first cup of tea of the day
07:00 Head off on the road
07:59 Arrive at work and head to canteen to get my second cup of tea of the day
08:00 Start work
09:30 Have third cup of tea of the day
11:00 Have lunch, yes I know this is a bit early but by now I’m famished.
12:00 In the absence of lunch at lunchtime have a cup of tea, the fourth so far today
14:00 Daily Post time! Think about what I am going to write later.
14:00 It’s been two hours since I’ve been caffeinated, so off to source my fifth cup of tea of the day
16:30 Start the journey back home
17:30 Best part of the day, arrive home back to see the family and get dinner ready.
18:00 Dinner time, then bath and bed time story for the dinosaur
23:00 Start to bargain with Mrs G about going to bed
00:00 Lights off and off to sleep (the real best part of the day).
In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “The Golden Hour.”
6:00AM: the best hour of the day, or too close to your 3:00AM bedtime?
